Halloween-Bagshot High Street 31st October!!!!!!

trick

Monday 31st October – Bagshot High Street. 4.30 – 5.30pm

Following on from the last couple of year’s very successful Halloweens, we are asking the businesses in Bagshot – mainly in the High Street, to open their doors to the little witches and wizards, ghouls and ghosts, pumpkins, cats, bats, monsters, zombies,  and not to mention the skeletons!

The event starts at 4.30pm and finishes at approx. 5.30pm.

We also know that The Cedar Tree are having a children’s Halloween Party (parents will need to chaperone) from  5.00 – 7pm (to be confirmed), monster supper for children provided along with entertainment. You will need to book in advance – more details as they are finalised.

So, start dusting down those vampire costumes and buy the fake blood ….. Bagshot High Street once again becomes Scary Alley!!

 If you live in Bagshot   we currently have 7 older people needing a volunteer friend who will visit for an hour just once a week.

The aim of our service is to help older people who may be feeling lonely and isolated by providing the stability of a loyal friend who will regularly visit them at home, providing mutual friendship and companionship.

It gives the older person the opportunity to discuss day to day worries with their visitor who can provide reassurance and assistance with finding out about local services.

Our visitors are carefully matched to an older person living nearby so that both parties can gain mutual enjoyment from their friendship.

If you feel you could help an older person by visiting them at a time to suit your convenience (evenings and weekends are OK too) please give us a call on 01276 707585 for further details.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Connaught School are collecting used stamps!!!!

Istamps

It’s getting to that time of year that Christmas cards starts falling through the letterbox from friends & family far and wide and attached to those letters & cards could be ‘unseen money’ – well to us at Connaught School anyway!

By bringing the envelope with the stamp attached into school, we can raise some valuable funds for our children and it doesn’t cost you a thing! And more importantly, if those stamps happen to be from overseas – we can raise even more money.

You can either save the stamps up and drop them in the special ‘stamp collection’ box near the front office or if you know a family with a child at Connaught, pass them onto them.

We will then collect them all and send them off for weighing and payment.
There are some golden rules though and the stamps must be:
• Recently collected and unpicked (i.e not been pulled off the envelope)
• A gap of at least 1cm around the stamp
• The perforations of the stamp must be damage free

So, please start stamp collecting now (it’s never too late too start a new hobby) and help us raise some funds for free!

A Very Humble ‘Thank you’ to Bagshot

***************Thank you – Thank you – Thank you ***************

Many, many thanks to all the wonderful people who kindly gave donated items or money to the Bagshot Village/Lisa May Foundation Nepal Earthquake Appeal these last few days . As I type the items of food, bedding and shelter, have all been collected from the The Cedar Tree, and are now being sorted and packed so they can begin their journey to Nepal with a group of local Nepalese doctors and volunteers on Sunday.Our thoughts are very much with them as they make this very tough and emotional journey to give help in a situation few of us can begin to imagine.

We have once again been overwhelmed by the generosity of the people of Bagshot Village – you are all truly amazing to say the least! We have now finished our collection of ‘goods’ for the time being, but we will continue to collect money in the special purple Lisa May cans around the village for a few more weeks. We envisage that our Bagshot Village campaign will finish at the end of June, but The Lisa May Foundation will continue to accept cash donations and continue to support the rescue work in Nepal for as long as it is needed.

On a separate note the wonderful Bagshot Infant School held a mufti day today and raised an astounding £650 for our appeal. This is an incredible amount of money and we are totally humbled by the generous donations by the children and their parents. They are all stars of the week!

A special mention should go here to Cheryl D’Cruz at the The Lisa May Foundation (now based at St. Anne’s House in Bagshot), who has coordinated so many aspects of this whole appeal and held it all together. She is a truly amazing person, who has probably had about 12 hours sleep this week. We should also be very proud of our very own Bagshot lad Nick Ransom, who as well as studying for his ‘A’ levels has produced three incredible videos for the Earthquake Appeal – (see them on the Lisa May Facebook page). Lots of us have been popping in and out and doing bits and pieces, but Cheryl and Nick are inspirational and totally dedicated to The Lisa May Foundation.

Bagshot Village Day Sunday 21st June 2015

The Bagshot Summer Village Day alternates between the High Street and other locations in the village – this year we have been invited to arrange the day at the Bagshot Playing Fields Association on College Ride. Those with long memories will remember we held the Millennium Fayre there in 2000, so we are due a return visit!

As you can see the date is Sunday 21st June – the longest day, so we are hoping for lots of sunshine to help the day go well. It will run from 1pm to  5pm, which allows time for families to get chores completed in the morning. As we also have several Church groups hoping to attend, this allows for Sunday Services to be completed and time for volunteers to set up the stalls.

As it is on a Sunday, we are hoping that many of the businesses from the village, can transfer their wares up to the pavilion and have a ‘pitch’. We are also asking for other interested groups around the village to run a stall or organise an activity – once you have paid for your pitch, all taking are yours to keep or pass on to your charity. We have some stalls you can hire – £40 for the day, or for £20 a pitch, you can bring your own tables and gazebo. Bagshot Events still need to raise money to cover costs and this is where we raise our funds.  There is plenty of space to spread out on the field, although there is limited room in the pavilion itself, so we are looking for outdoor stalls and activities only. The pavilion itself will be used as a First Aid post, lost children, mission control ……. with kettle boiling facilities!

So, put the date in your diaries, and contact me if you wish to run a stall or organise an activity. Please send an email to events@bagshotvillage.com and I will send an application form and more details. If you wish to help on the day with setting up and/or tidying up afterwards, general marshaling, you would also be very welcome. Please send me an email with your name and contact number.

If you know any group, charity or business in Bagshot or the surrounding area, who would be interested, make sure you send them this message.

Thank you

Children, can you please come and fill in a small card and /or decorate a small bauble and hang them on the tree?!! Fairy Nuff would be absolutely delighted if you could as it is looking a little bit bare at the moment!

Can you donated a gift for a less fortunate child in the area?

Fairy Nuff would be even more delighted if you could put a new present in the 96.4 Eagle Radio Appeal Box. They are collecting for children and teenagers in less fortunate circumstances than most of us. Let’s get the box full of wonderful gifts all donated from us lovely folk  in Bagshot. The gifts should be unwrapped so they can be allocated appropriately when taken back to Eagle House in Guildfordsanta. Many many thanks in anticipation!
